It not only rules over Virgo but it is also the planet that governs Gemini. In Roman mythology, Mercury is the messenger of the Gods. Son of Jupiter, he is quick and fast. He wears a winged helmet. These wings can also be found on his feet.
The element of Virgo is Earth. Symbolically, the element of Earth is the one that follows Fire. Fire is a conqueror, the Earth makes its conquests last.

Earth signs are realistic and show rigor and hard work when they do something. Material things are always at the center of their concerns.
Beige and gray are the favorite colors of the native of Virgo. This Earth sign is analogous to body parts found in the digestive tract and the intestines.

Friends and Family
Loyal in friendship, the natives of Virgo get on well with most astrological signs. Their main character trait in friendship is that they are very devoted. Virgo sometimes devote body and soul to their friends and are much more concerned with their problems than their own. In the long run, it makes them suffer inside.
Virgo appreciate their friends to the point of wanting them to be part of their family. Only then will they feel good about themselves. However, they are very demanding and a little selective with their friends. If they feel that one of them does not live up to their expectations, they will also suffer from it.
The natives of Virgo and Aries are good friends. They naturally get along, sharing the same goals. However, it is a friendship that needs to stand the test of time, slowly fading over the years.

With Gemini, Virgo do not have any affinities and do not support the mood swings of Gemini or their whimsical nature. As for them, Gemini will not tolerate the rigidity of Virgo. It is a friendly relationship that is bound to fail.
